6 Parks near Overton, Nevada
Oct 2016 - $15.00
The bathrooms are closed for cleaning from 6 a.m. until 8 a.m. There couldn't be a more inconvenient time. Also, the bathrooms are not serviced on weekends, so by Sunday morning there is no toilet paper or hand towels in the women's restroom.
The WIFI is so poor as to be almost non-existent.
This is a very quiet park. - cactuslady

As mentioned, this an older, mostly mobile home village that has around 70 RV sites. The pull through sites are down the middle of the row, gravel and level. 50 amp service, water with two spigots and sewer connection at each site. No picnic table or fire pit. There are plenty of trees, however most of the sites had branches overhanging the site making it difficult to position the rig without the limbs interfering with the slides or awnings. The office is closed on the weekends, so if you will arrive after closing on Friday, make arrangements to get a key to the bathroom building when you call for a spot. This isn't a fancy park, but it's neat, tidy, quiet and a great value with the GS rate. - Good Vibes

This is a small RV park next to a trailer park. Most of the campers seemed to be long term but there were a couple other overnighters the night we stayed. The sites are small but level and nicely spaced and there are some trees for shade. Some back-in and some pull-through. We are a total of 40 ft and had to unhook in a pull-through to fit in. There was no one around when we arrived and the sign on the door said to just go ahead a pick a site, which we did. It was very quiet both in the evening and overnight. - ALbums

Snow Bird Mesa (aka poverty flats) is a "boon docking" camping area. By that I mean it's free, but there are no hook ups. It strictly dry camping in self contained rigs. Power is supplied by your own generator, solar panels, or wind turbines. You supply your own water, and bath room. The place is located about 5 miles south of Overton, Nevada. You just pull in, find an open area, and camp. That's it. It is seasonal which runs from October 1st to the end of June. The land, last I heard, was Bureau of Reclamation, and they send a guy by every so often to check on the various rigs being used out there. If your RV has any leaks, you will have to repair the problem, and clean up your mess. That, or leave. Folks in non self contained rigs will get a visit from the local police. Fire, Police, and Medical will respond as needed from Overton. I spent last winter there (7 months) just trying out my boon docking adventure. I had a good time, although it did get a bit unseasonably cold for a week or so. You can get cell service, wireless computer signals, sat TV, and depending on your antenna, some over the air channels. This is one of those places that unless you are with a group, minding your own business might come in handy. If your neighbors are close enough, they are friendly, and most folks watch over each other. Boating, fishing, and sight seeing are all with in 25 miles. Dump stations are available in Overton for a fee. Valley of Fire State Park is about 15 miles a way. For a$10/$8 daily entry fee, they offer showers, fresh water, and a dump station. A year pass is $75.00. When I was there there were about 65+/- rigs out there, and there was still a lot of room available. It's a pretty decent place for the price. - Patchez

Ah, our absolute favorite place to stay in Nevada. As Senior Nevada residents we bought a yearly pass that allows us free entrance and free camping. Only paid $10 a night for hookups. Came in Saturday of long veterans day weekend and all the signs said campground FULL. Drove through anyway and found someone leaving in our FAVORITE SITE. Right up against the red rock and so quiet. - Sewfast

Excellent stay. We arrived mid-afternoon in the 3rd week of October on a weekday prepared to find the campgrounds full and to have to go up the road 3.6 miles north of the entrance to VoF to boondock in an area that we had identified via Google Earth prior to our trip. Instead we found only the RV sites with utilities full and most of the rest available (though most were taken by sunset). BTW, the booddocking area to the north is public land and there's room for hundreds of RVs. There were a few dozen there when we drove past, saving the $20/night I suppose.
Most tent/RV sites have majestic backdrops. Our space in the circular are in Arch Rock Campground was 20' from a huge red rock wall that dwarfed our FV. I do wish we had explored the rest of the loop before choosing a site though the one we had was breathtaking.
The only downside was rude people driving too fast on the campground gravel roads and inundating us in fine sand. I suspect this problem would have been worse further along the loop.
The day temperature was in the low 80's in this 3rd week of October. The park was quite busy but we always found a place to park near the sights and hikes we wanted to take. - hclarkx

This place requires a bit of extra traveling since it's off about 20-30 minutes off I-15, but it's a gorgeous area! The sites were plentiful this time of year, probably because it was about 110 degrees in the late afternoon. But, everything was clean and the site had all the hookups we needed (water & 30 amp power to run the air conditioner). Lots of rocks for hiking and climbing but practically no shade unless you can snag one of the spots in the shade of the rocks. There is a separate camping area for RVs ($20 to camp, extra $10 for hookups), but a couple more campgrounds available for tents. Despite the heat, the RV campground was about 1/3 full. Looks like all the RV sites have covered picnic tables and grills too. The RV sites do not have sewer but there is a good dump station available. Our site was large enough to accommodate two RVs (or an RV plus a trailer). I'd stay here for more than an overnight when the weather is cooler because the hiking opportunities look awesome. - SLOman

This is a pretty desolate spot. Our site overlooked some modular buildings. It was hot and windy; we came here to do some paddling, but that was not possible due to the wind. Marina is still closed, with only the store/check-in and a gasoline (no diesel) station. No TV or Wifi. Restrooms/showers were clean, but shower layout does not lend itself to much privacy. There was a helpful and friendly camp host. Check-in was difficult as their machine would not accept my credit card. Attendant said it happens a lot to people traveling across state lines because of proximity to Las Vegas. So we paid cash and corrected the problem with Visa without a problem. Just weird! - Pharmboy

Echo Bay is alive and well as of 1/15/2014. Forever Resorts has taken over as the concessionaire from 7 Crowns, and are cleaning the place up. The National Park has a campground that is open with a full time campground host. This host and another volunteer are cleaning up the campgrounds. The restaurant, and marina are still closed. However, there is a little store, and gas station that are open. Gas is $3.95 a gallon. There are two places to launch a boat, with ample parking. Burrows, and Coyotes are in the area. It's a good, quiet place to stop over when on the road, in the area. - Patchez

Nice park run by NPS but due to economy the marina closed down and the Overton Beach marina closed down completely so there isn't much here anymore and it is pretty much out of the way. A better bet is Callville Bay about 20 miles down the road and still on the lake. Big marina there. - Lefty from LA

Stayed nearly a month. A pet friendly park with lots of desert areas to walk your dogs. Nice quiet RV park, Mostly retired folks with boats. Spaces wide enough for truck and boats, picnic tables. Lots of empty spaces during Jan and Feb. Restrooms and showers warm and clean. Motel and restaurant closed but marina store open with limited supplies. Found Linn's grocery store in Overton, NV about twenty miles for good meats and produce. Marina dominates this resort, no public lake use area, no beach for families and children, no swim area, no fishing in Marina. Marina putting in new low water road and ramp. Lake is down some seven years now and affecting this resort. Overton Bay marina and park area closed, no water. We found shoreline fishing off Stewarts road, some five miles from Echo Bay,recommended four wheel drive. Caught a nice stripper but only one fish in many days. Boaters also not catching fish. Saw some wildlife: desert big horn sheep, birds, lizards, burros and enjoyed hiking the area. Friendly Lake Mead park Rangers. Probably camp here again, monthly rates, no discounts. - rick&carrie

We rented a RV site at this park for the entire summer from 2004-2009. We lived in California and would leave our motorhome there all hooked up and ready to go. The spaces are large, we had a 30' motorhome, a full size truck and a 26' boat and still had room for another vehicle. Campground is clean, restrooms and showers are clean. Would highly recommend it. We no longer go because we have moved too far away! But our extended family still goes & leaves their RV's there all summer! - wolffwl

OK spot for one overnight. We wanted into Valley of Fire, however, due to Easter vacation was full. Went thru alot of road construction to get there. Some trees and level sites. Not our destination, however, OK for a backup. - Sewfast

Nice and clean. Well laid out with big paved streets. More of a long stay park. Good laundry facilities. No real pet area. Lots of dirt, but this is a desert! Showers are definitely communal. - New RVer
